The Good Times of Pelican Rise #2:
The No Waste Race
by Samone Amba
On the footpath?
On the fanciest street in Pelican Rise?
When Sunday Moon trips over a toilet that’s been left out for hard rubbish collection, she starts seeing rubbish EVERYWHERE, from plastic bags floating in Yabby Swamp to coffee cups littering the streets.
After Pelican Rise Primary pledges to cut out single-use plastics for a month, Sunday and her besties Ockie, Kirra and Lottie are inspired to go even further and launch their very own war on waste. Plastic is OUT! Vintage clothes are IN! And all that hard rubbish on the nature strips could make for fantastic billy cart materials …
With the help of the rest of grade six, plenty of secondhand tyres and a LOT of memes, The Good Times crew are going to host the best billy cart race that Pelican Rise has ever seen; a race that says NO to waste!
Welcome back to The Good Times of Pelican Rise … a fun series that explores growing up, finding community spirit and using your voice to Be the Change.
